The Holy Biscuit is proud to present recent work by contemporary interdisciplinary artist and 2013 New Graduate Winner (awarded by Forefront Collective), Louise Mackenzie whose interest lies in psychology and philosophy and the evolution of society through art, science and religion. In her first solo exhibition, Mackenzie takes fragments of a 104 year old organ, once the beating heart of a former Methodist church in Gateshead and through sound, social media and sculpture redefines the energy of a community within a contemporary context. For more info about the show, go to The Holy Biscuit blog.
Sunday 23 March, 14.00-17.00; Free event with loaner books available to use.
All those with an interest in singing (with or without experience) are invited to this Sacred Harp Singing School. Sacred Harp music is a vibrant and lively four-part harmony singing style, and a notation system that makes sight reading music easy for those who are new to music notation, improves sight singing for the more experienced, and helps make this exciting and moving music accessible to all. The singing is done in a social setting, without audiences (although there are performing groups), and no experience of music is needed to begin learning to read, sing and enjoy the music. For further information on Sacred Harp, see www.fasola.org, www.ukshapenote.org.uk and www.newcastleshapenote.co.
